Our story is deeply rooted in the American dream. Our founder Carrie, an immigrant from Vietnam, was raised by a single mother who wanted better opportunities for her children. The family left Vietnam in 1993 and settled in Texas to begin a new life. Inspired by her own mother’s hard work and perseverance, Carrie became a lawyer so she can help others.

Our entire legal team, composing of immigrants and children of immigrants, understands how important your immigration issue is to you and your family. We know that the immigration process can be difficult and stressful.
